And what of the LL-60 focusing screen that was for the *ist D series. It fit fine on my K10D and K20D, but will it also fit on the K-5? Anyone know?
And if it doesn't, is there an equivalent for the K-5? I much prefer the division into thirds rather than quarters as with the ML-60.

The little holding tab that sticks out from the focusing screen changed side on the K-7. So K20D and earlier focusing screens will not fit on a K-7/K-5.

Is It Easy to Swap K-5 Focus Screen?

Is it easy to swap focus screens in the K-5?

Is the K-5 focus screen meant to be user swapable?

Does Pentax make more than one kind of focus screen for the K-5?

Like most things, its quite easy once you know how to do it. Took me 10 minutes the first time and 2 minutes the next time. Watch a YouTube video on it and just do not try to wipe it or clean it with anything I know of (other than air).

Other screens are available all over the net if Pentax does not have one you want. Many threads already cover this topic but mostly for split-prism screens.
